Realizing the full potential of trees for adaptation and resilience

Digital Room 2

As food, fuel and fertilizer prices surge, the world is rapidly entering into a prolonged hunger crisis that is disproportionately affecting Africa. Trees and forests are a key nature-based solution that can provide inclusive, resilient and safe food systems for all. In this session, we will showcase a selection of solutions to boost the climate adaptation and resilience of farming communities in Africa. These pilots will focus on solutions to overcome adoption barriers for agroecological intensification with trees in different African land use systems. This session is hosted by CIFOR and ICRAF, both CGIAR Centers, which were merged in 2019 to bring together 700 applied researchers working in transdisciplinary teams to deliver solutions for productive and resilient landscapes.
